Kasey Hill – Author & Poet
How do I jazz up an about me page? Hmm…it’s so easy writing character synopses than what it is to summarize myself up in bio. I have always had a passion for words. When I was little my kindergarten teacher had a parent teacher conference with my mom wanting to put me in an accelerated reading program. She noticed how I picked up books and made up stories to the pictures in them. From that point I flourished with words. I was always reading and always writing.
I started writing creatively in elementary school, however, it was many years later in high school that it became a passion of mine. Once I graduated high school, I became enthused by occultic matters (furthering another childhood passion) and began writing with Nancy Chandler on her Trinitarian Wicca pieces. All things fiction has always been my thing, reading it, watching it, and writing it. I lost all inspiration when my mother passed in 2009.
I was 20 years old, soon to turn 21 in two weeks (which was our shared birthday, my birth was her birthday present.) I was 2 weeks from finishing my last semester of college and it hit me hard. So hard, that I lost interest in everything I had passion about. My whole life was put on hold even though the years whizzed past my head. After six years of numbness, and hitting a solid 27 years old, a tidal wave burst through the built dam, and I began writing again. I started back on the projects with Nancy Chandler with her long awaited return of my play of words.
In November of 2014. I really got started back into the fiction and my first piece is technically considered fan fiction for the Wizard of Oz called The Wastelands of Oz (although to me it’s my baby and not a piece of fan fiction). However, after the plot twists story change, you can’t really consider it fan fiction anymore as it has taken on a life separate from the original series. You can find a summary about it in my writings in progress page. It was published through Jaded Books Publishing in June of 2016. I have two books published and publishing with Jaded Books Publishing (Firefly of Immortality and Tiptoe Through the Tulips-poetry-,) featured in three anthologies with the company, as well as published in a separate press’ anthology Den of Quills Seasons Anthology. I have 15 more novels started, some part of series, 2 short story anthologies I am working on, and 20 story ideas floating around in my head to write.
I have two self-published poetry books on amazon kindle. One was written winter of 2014-2015. The base of it is really all the pent up darkness and brooding I’ve dealt with over the course of six years and finally accepting the pain as opposed to being numb over everything.The second one is a poetry/lyrics book. I was heavy into lyrics writing while I was younger, which went out the door as well when my mother passed.
The floodgates have opened up and I have been using all the anger, all the pain, all the sadness, and all the built up depression I have clung to for years to fuel my writings. I have a few pages with a few more in mind to add to my blogsite. My third one is my contribution to the Trinitarian Tradition I have been a coauthor in since 2007.
